This review reports on the knowledge about odourant-olfactory receptor interactions and their projection within the field of structure-odour relationships (SOR). We provide a list of agonists and odour spaces associated with deorphanized human olfactory receptors. The link between olfactory receptor responses, differential perception and subtleties within odour families is discussed. Copyright
